Judges of Color Reception Recap!

"There is no Justice without Diversity"

Thank you everyone that helped the LCD, the George W. Crawford Black Bar Association and Wiggin & Dana LLP honor our Judges of Color, their many achievements and the contributions they make to the integrity of our judicial system.

Enjoy a few candid photos of our speakers: Carolyn Golden Hebsgaard - LCD's Executive Director, Joaquina Borges King - LCD's President, Mary Gambardella - Partner, Wiggin & Dana LLP, Delania Barbee - Partner, Day Pitney, LLP and member of the George W. Crawford Black Bar Association and Angela C. Robinson - former Superior Court Judge and Partner at Wiggin & Dana LLP.

A special thank you to former Superior Court Judge Ms. Angela C. Robinson, this years panel moderator. Ms. Robinson facilitated a fruitful panel discussion with the Judges in attendance. Each Judge shared their unique perspectives on what it means to be a judge today, how they each identify themselves, limitations on activism, ways in which they can advocate for social justice and what they would like to remembered for.

A common theme of the night was fairness, dignity, honesty and respect for whomever walks into their courtroom
